Edale Rise Primary and Nursery School


At Edale Rise we care about every child attending school. Attending school is essential for children's well-being and academic future. Our target is for all children to have an attendance of at least 96% or above.

Allowing children to miss a day of school unnecessarily not only means they are missing their right to education, but it is also breaking the law. Routines are necessary for parents/carers and children. 

Here at Edale Rise, we are working hard alongside families to improve attendance for all children. 

Allowing children to miss school without good reason is not acceptable. Taking your child shopping, letting them stay at home due to a minor cold or going on holiday during term time are just some examples.

We understand that some parents need help with getting their child to school, and we are happy to offer help and practical support through school.

If you would like further information and support with school attendance please contact the school attendance team of Carol Arnold, Zoe Pieniazek and Tom Buckmaster.
